Yesterday we celebrated our 43 wedding anniversary. We approach the chance to enter in the Guiness Book of records.
43 years with the same man is really a record !
To celebrate this event, I ordered 2 Sushi menues, so I didn't have to cook. After 43 years he knows my cooking, but the Japanese style less.
I had to put the bags in a cupboard because cat Arthur smelled the fish in the sushis and started to meow operas in the kitchen. As it was noon, I thought after 5 h of hearing his songs we would both getting crazy. When it was time I put the Sushis on a plate which was quiet a lot of work, but no effort is hard enough to serve a good meal to your man for this special event. I even let him carry the trays into the living room !
While I enjoyed my sushis and watched the last dramas in the news on TV, he fought with the cats who wanted to jump in his plate, especially the always hungry Arthur. With the time and age, he and Mr. G. become more and more similar, they both have a timer in their stomac when it comes to eating. However there is a difference, Mr. G. doesn't catch mice, but he puts the corpses in our bin. That's called cooperation !
After this delicious meal, Arthur leaked his whiskers and Mr. G. purred with a full stomac and then we watched a Midsomer Murder to end this special day. Fortunately no husband murdered his wife.
43 years ago it was very warm 25°C (!!) (78 F) and while we were celebrating in a restaurant together with some friends and my parents, our furniture arrived with a truck and we had to leave the table drive to our new appartment to open the door. When everything was uploaded, we returned to the restaurant where our guests had nearly finished.
This was only our civil marriage we had to do it in a hurry not because of a baby but because of our appartment which we had found and wanted to rent, but in 1969 a young couple couldn't rent an appartment together without a marriage certificate !
The big wedding feast took place two months later, that's why we celebrate our marriage twice !
